Community Helpers Counting Puzzles
This counting puzzle set includes 8 puzzles with community helper scenes for the following community helpers: mail carrier, firefighter, doctor, dentist, librarian, teacher, veterinarian, and farmer.
Each puzzle starts on a different number (0-20) and counts by 1’s.
This is great practice for kids to learn concepts such as before and after, as well as build up their number recognition skills.
How to Prep and Play
After cutting out each puzzle, I cut each one into 10 strips by cutting on the light gray lines. Time to play!
These puzzles are easy and so fun! Students simply place the puzzle pieces in number order until they complete the full community helper scene.
Teacher Tip: To keep things organized and not mix up all 80 pieces at once, place each puzzle in its own envelope or zip-top bag. This way you can easily see which 10 pieces go together!
